Philippe Halsman

Philippe Halsman (1906–1979) was an American portrait photographer born in Riga in the part of the Russian Empire which later became Latvia.

During his long and illustrious career, Halsman took a number of famous photographs of Alfred Hitchcock. His daughter, Irene, later recalled:

My father and Hitchcock were friends and corresponded together. My father had a huge wine collection that he shared with his guests, including my father. On one occasion, Hitch sent him some rare wine goblets.
— Irene Halsman[1]
